Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Teacher gives students the opportunity to describe the pictures and give the main idea of each one. He has to check if the students know the target language which will be presented in the next stage: early, late, tired and busy.

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

Students will be provided with an audio. They listen to it and take notes of what Pete and Maggie always do on Sundays. After, the teacher checks if they understand the meaning of always, every, ever, sometimes, usually.

Highlighting (2-4 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

Teacher provides students with the reading passage (ex.2b pg.44) and let them check if their answers are true or false, then teacher provides them with the correct answer.

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

In pairs, students will read the text 2.b pg.44 again and answer the question: "What do Pété and Maggie always do together on Sundays?"

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

In groups, students reorder the adverbs of frequency in their correct order and describe their own from the list provided by the teacher.

Semi-Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

Students use adverbs of frequency depending on the amount of time they spend on their activities. For example, a student says: "I always eat out at the weekend" means that he eats out every weekend.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Teacher asks students to write a paragraph describing their daily activities using the adverbs of frequency taught before: "never, always, sometimes, usually."
